Thanks for taking the time to look at and review my site.
In response to your post:
I viewed the Milano Insulated tote bag through 3 different browsers and could not find the broken pic.
The giveaway is a great idea. I planned on implementing that in a couple of months. I was going to have them go to my facebook page and like us and leave a comment on a topic I will pick from month to month related to my site and it's products. I will pull the winner from the comments left each month.
I like the categories to bee on the side as well, but I was talked into this by the designer. This is something I have been considering changing.
I will add dates to the blogs, but I am considering having my designer make this act as an actual blog like wordpress etc.
I have about 30 product related videos on the homepage and some on the specific product pages. But I probably need to make sure all the products that have vids have them on each product page.
I agree with having the contact info more prominent.
I thought I had the shipping deal front and center. But maybe a font color change would make it stand out more. I plan on changing the image in the free shipping logo to match the holiday or season's to keep it fresh.
As far as the scrolling. I have been debating that with myself. My main concern is not looking like everyone else in this niche. I do agree I need to use the space more wisely. But at the same time have a little more style than the competition. I'll work on that.
And yes I dropship everything for now. It's by far the easiest way to start. But as things grow and I learn more things will probably change.
I have a facebook (Welcome) page. I have a product feeds through facebook and google feeds. I have a twitter page. I have a off site blog. I'm on stumble upon, linkedin, reddit, digg, delicious.
I have used fanbase solutions to do PPC on facebook. I also dabbled with Adwords.
I employ a marketing firm to do all my on-site and off-site seo work.
I employ a writer to make sure all my content is original, down to the product descriptions. She also maintains the on-site blog adding new content weekly.
Am I missing something?
If anyone can think of something, please let me know.
Thanks again for the input. I really appreciate it.
